REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD DATE A NURSE
1. You’ll Never Have to Self-Diagnose Again
Dating a nurse means you’ll have on-call support 24/7!
2. Nurses Are Compassionate
Part of a committed relationship is putting someone else’s needs
above your own from time to time. If you’re dating a nurse, you can
count on them to be a dedicated and patient person who knows how to
3. Nurses Are Smart
Along with sense of humor and good looks, intelligence ranks at the
top when it comes to desirable qualities in a mate. Nurses have to
take countless science classes in nursing school and think on their
feet all day once they start working. If you’re dating a nurse, you
can be pretty sure you aren’t dating a dummy.
4. Nurses Have Seen It All
One of the hardest parts about the courtship process is how easily
we’re embarrassed. We all try to present perfect versions of
ourselves to the people we’re dating in the beginning stages of a
relationship. The only problem: nobody’s perfect. Nurses have seen
every body type and bodily function. It doesn’t mean people who
date nurses can ignore hygiene and proper decorum, but it does mean
nurses may be a bit more understanding of normal human
5. Nurses Have Nerves of Steel
Accidents are bound to happen. What kind of mishaps you ask?
Anything from a paper cut to the kind that has you unexpectedly
running for the bathroom door after too many glasses of wine. If
you’re dating a nurse, you can rest assured it’s nothing their
nerves of steel can’t handle. Be glad that they might actually be
inclined to think it’s cute and want to take care of you.
6. A Nurse’s Schedule is Anything But Ordinary
If your lifestyle caters to it, the odd hours can be an advantage.
Are you stuck working the graveyard shift for your security job
every Friday? If you’re dating a nurse, with the same irregular
schedule, Mondays can become the new Friday. Say goodbye to long
lines at the movie theater and the 45-minute wait at your favorite
7. Nurses Are Great to Introduce to Mom and Dad
In this economy, having a good job is nothing to scoff at. Nurses
make a respectable living, and people look up to them for doing
important work that helps people. And if things go well in a
relationship, at some point it will be time to meet the parents.
Telling the ‘rents that you’re dating a nurse will make that
meeting easier, right from the start..
8. Nurses Make Great Parents
We mentioned how nurses are compassionate and not as squeamish
about bodily functions. Not coincidentally, those qualities also
make them great parents. You might not be worried about that on a
first date, but who knows, it may become something you think about
9. Nurses Can Help Keep You Safe
Nurses know CPR, first aid, and some even know how to perform
surgical procedures. If any medical emergency arises, they’ll know
what to do and stay calm throughout the process. You know that
saying, “It’s always nice to have a doctor in the house”? Well, the
same applies to nurses. However, don’t expect special treatment
every time you’re under the weather. Nurses take care of sick
people all day, the last thing they want to do is the same thing at
10. Nurses Have Great Stories
Whether they work in an emergency room, a pediatrician’s office or
a mental health facility, nurses come across some pretty crazy
situations. While some of those situations may be tough on the
nurse you’re dating, they can lead to some pretty entertaining
stories for you (with all names omitted and confidentiality laws
followed, of course).
11. You Might Get to See the World
Dating a travel nurse? Their nomadic lifestyle could give you the
opportunity to travel, see, and live in new cities. Life on the
road isn’t always easy, but for the right person, this could be a
dream come true. Some people would give anything to get out and see
the world with someone they love! 12. You’ll Learn to Talk the Talk
“Frequent flyer”? “Jack in the box”? “Crispies”?! No, we’re not
talking about jetsetters, children’s toys, or the popular Kellogg’s
cereal. We’re referring to medical jargon that only a bona fide
nurse would understand. Snuggle up next to your favorite nurse (the
one you’re dating, of course) and make sense of all this mumbo
jumbo that continually pops up on your favorite TV shows like Nurse
Jackie and HawthoRNe.
13. The Scrubs
Who doesn’t love a man or woman in a uniform? Ok, so maybe scrubs
aren’t the sexiest uniform, but you have to admit, they can be
pretty darn cute. Besides, if you’re ever in a situation where you
need to pick out their work outfit, it should be a breeze.
14. Nurses Are Active
The thing about having a job where you’re on your feet all the time
is that you’re constantly moving. Therefore, you might find that
nurses are apt to be in better shape than the average desk
15. Nurses Rock!
Last but not least: who WOULDN’T want to date a nurse? They‘re
amazing! Becoming a nurse is no easy task, and these individuals
have persevered through thick and thin. You can sleep at night
knowing that the nurse you’re dating is doing something good in
this world- even when they aren’t with you!
